Spring Track - Boys

What was the best season for each event?  We go event by event, by year, and look at the best times, the number 
of athletes under certain times and look at the depth of the event.  Then we decide which year was the best year
for the event.

SR = State Record at the time

2013 had the most under 2:08.  2014 had the most under 2:04, 2:12, 2:16 and 2:20.  In fact they destroyed the records for 2:16 and 2:20.  In 2005,
we had 4 boys under 1:56.0 as the 4 x 800 relay team broke the old State record that had been held since the late 1970s.  They also finished 2nd in the
National Championship Distance Medley race.  They had the most under 1:56 and 2:00.  In the end, you have to go with a state record and 4 under 1:56
even though the depth of the 2014 team was amazing.   The winner has to be - 2005.
